Immerse yourself in the best of what nature and music have to offer!

Every year, the CAMMAC Music Centre welcomes amateur musicians of all ages and abilities from around the world to come and make music in the enchanting surroundings of our facility in the Laurentians.

The CAMMAC Summer Music Camp spans eight weeks, with programs including classical music, chamber music, jazz, Broadway, choir, Celtic music, orchestra and more. Other classes are available throughout the summer as well: recorder, choir, chamber music, small ensembles, percussion, Orff, dance, yoga and drawing.

Additional programs take place throughout the year, including Spring Break, an all-adults weekend in April, Bach Plus weekend in May, Labour Day Weekend and Thanksgiving.

Unforgettable musical Sundays

Enjoy great food and music with CAMMAC’s summer concert series!

Every Sunday throughout the season, you can enjoy an hour of music performed by internationally renowned artists. Past performers include musicians from Les Violons du Roy, The Gesualdo Six, Karen Young and Marianne Trudel and many more. The concerts are followed by a hearty buffet brunch in our dining room with its balcony overlooking Lake MacDonald. Then take a relaxing stroll down to the Boat House for a magnificent view of the lake.
